that the nsa collects, you know, data on our cell phones and they track our locations via our cell phones. for young voters they don't like the concept of government intruding on your personal life, knowing where you are. i think that's repulsive to them. my guess is that several months worth of continuous revelations along those fronts has damaged the president. >> sam, let me ask you about that. let's stick with the young voters and their growing apparent disapproval of the bristol-mye obama administration and the president himself. do you think, those that a larger part of their disenchantment with this particular president has to do with the fact when they get out of college they won't be able to afford a cell phone because there will be no job for them, because the economic landscape is so bleak for them? >> sure. i totally think that. that's very accurate. you know the thing is one time where the white house was doing well politically this past year was during the government shutdown. it's a weird way to say you're doing well when the entire government stops. i think young voters an
